(a) An assessment of a subscriber or member of an insurer made by the director under the order of court fixing the aggregate amount of the assessment against all members or subscribers and approving the classification and formula made by the director under AS 21.78.310 shall be prima facie correct.

(d) If the subscriber or member after due service of a copy of the order and petition referred to in (c) of this section is made upon the member or subscriber
(1) fails to appear at the time and place specified in the order, judgment shall be entered against the member or subscriber as prayed for in the petition; or
